I would be wary of this bracket:

The very low price makes me wonder if this plate is an alloy- casting instead of being machined out of solid aluminium?

Just be sure that the grooves are deep enough to be securely gripped by an Arca-style clamp and that the bracket won't shear-off under a heavy load.

Clamps, plates, tripod-fittings and camera straps are not things on which I am prepared to economise!
